  All Day Dog Days of Spring   Dogs are faithful, loyal, and love their owners without question. Whether young or old, rich or poor, clever or dull, most dog owners love their pets as much, if not more as their family members. The upcoming “Dog Days of Spring” event will be hosted to honor these beloved dogs and their special family connection. “Dog Days of Spring” event captures a photographic portrait of your family dog. A portrait you are sure to treasure a lifetime. This event will consist of a portrait session of a family dog with session fees being donated to the Animal Protective League (APL). APL is partnering with Terry Farmer Photography this spring to promote awareness and raise funds for APL’s important animal welfare work. APL is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for ill, injured, abused or homeless animals, and coordinating the adoption of those animals with responsible pet owners. APL also operates a high quality, lowcost spay/neuter clinic that is helping to end animal overpopulation. APL gives priority to sick and injured strays in our community. Each year, with the help of generous donors APL is able to house, rehabilitate, and adopt out, over 1,500 animals every year! Supporting “Dog Days of Spring” and APL are local personalities including Justin Fowler (The State JournalRegister), Rick Brandt (Brandt Consolidated), Jeff Ball (Hanson Professional Services), Lucy Bagot (Ace Hardware), Bob Ritz (St. John’s Hospital), and Susan Koch (University of Illinois Springfield) to name a few.

This year’s theme is “Billion Acts of Green.” All events are open to the public and being held at no charge at LLCC-Springfield, 5250 Shepherd Road, unless otherwise noted. Food Patriots Movie Showing and Greenie Awards Ceremony, 5:30 p.m., Trutter Center."Food Patriots" focuses on an issue that directly touches all of us—food. Touched by his son's struggle with a food-borne illness, filmmaker Jeff Spitz weaves his family's humorous story into a tapestry of stories about people who are changing the way Americans eat, buy and educate the next generation about food. The film depicts personal stories that show ordinary people taking control of food and creating healthier lives, a less polluted environment, a new sense of community and new jobs. Open discussion with local food experts will follow the movie viewing. The movie is co-hosted by Slow Food Springfield and Illinois Stewardship Alliance. The Greenie Awards recognize individuals (one LLCC faculty member, one LLCC staff member, and one LLCC student) who initiate or support an activity with positive environmental outcomes; encourage participation and involvement; work together with other individuals, groups, and organizations to meet their goal; and/or demonstrate a sustained effort or campaign on campus related to sustainability and environmental awareness.
